ah, yes!

indeed that sounds *precisely* like it was an uploaded .mp4
file that doesn't have the "moov atom" at the front of the file, but at the end.
nearly all default mp4 makers will write the keyframe information at the end of the file, and one has to be diligent to make sure to rewrite the .mp4 after the transcoding is done to put the "moov atom" at the front.

"qt-faststart" is a great little utility/fixer part of the "ffmpeg" package (both of which we use here when we make our .mp4).

so yah, unfortunately, we've felt reticent to modify an uploader's "source" .mp4 files and rewrite the atoms for them, for when they're at the end of their .mp4.

we're still kinda trying to figure out what to do for these cases...
